The Basics

With plenty to do for visitors of all ages—and various dining, shopping, and nightlife options—Hillarys Boat Harbour is a pleasant spot to spend the day (or evening). Several seasonal activities take place at the harbor, such as stand-up paddleboard lessons and inflatable water rides for kids. Check to see what’s on when you’re there.

Boat tours depart from the area, and adventure-fishing and wildlife-watching cruises sometimes pass through the harbor. You’ll also find some accommodation options, as an alternative to staying in Perth.

Whale-Watching Cruise and Hillarys Boat Harbour Day Trip from Perth
Boarded the cruse at 10.10, and after even 1.5 hr, could not find whale. But the cruise team did not give up and continue the search. finally DID!!! The team did a FANTASTIC job, giving us EXTENDED time. The cruise supposed to end at 12.30, but we were still out at sea watching the whale family at 1pm. The team also did A GREAT job re-organizing the coach transfer for us back into Perth. All in all, VERY WELL DONE and KUDO to the Cruise team. Highly recommended.
